Uniquely Eureka Experience

“For me, it is all about family, many of whom attended Eureka. I trace my family connection with Eureka College back over 125 years, to the late 1880s, when my great-grandmother, Mary Fordyce, enrolled at Eureka. Many others followed including both of my parents. My father served as a trustee for many years and my great uncle played football with Ronald Reagan.

As has been true of so many who have attended Eureka I received a very personal education. The combination of a math major and an English minor prepared me well for graduate school and a math-related career in insurance and pensions, where the ability to explain complex concepts was just as important as technical competence.”
